One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Many of us know at least one woman who has been touched or even devastated by this frightening disease. SMHC’s Center for Breast Care enables our friends and neighbors to get their breast cancer care right here, close to their homes, families and friends. Sponsorships, gifts and pledges raised through the Maine Coast Half Marathon and Marathon will help provide extra programs and services including a specially trained nurse “navigator” who supports cancer patients and their families at every step of their journey as they make critical care decisions. “Running a marathon is a lot like battling cancer,” stated breast cancer survivor Stacey Ivancic. “It’s a journey both ways – you just have to get through it and you’ll be better at the end.” We would like to invite you to join Stacey and other breast cancer survivors in our community in fighting against this disease. SMHC’s Center for Breast Care has been designated as a breast imaging center of excellence by the American College of Radiology. On behalf of our breast cancer patients, thank you for your support and encouraging your family and friends to pledge your efforts!
